Hello PCSU1000 Experts,
I am using a PCSU1000 (S/N 200804571) for serveral years in my lab and
am i am very satisfied with the product. The box is running with a Windows 7 64 System.
The PC with the PCSU100 has the Driver PCSU1000_driver_2.04.16 installed
which is a derivate of the FTDI 220.127.116.11 Driver and it is working flawless.
Actually I am trying to use an USB logic analyzer (ScanaPlus form ikalogic) on this box too and
i 'm getting screwed up.
The ScanaPlus installs the newest FTDI Driver (2.8.30 / 12.07.2013).
The new FTDI Driver wont work with PCSU100 an will lock up the PCSU1000 Software when started.
Is there a way, to use the newest FTDI Drivers with PCSU1000?
The ScanaPlus wants a Version >= 2.80.30 and this FTDI Driver seems not to work with PCSU1000.
The hardware detection is improved in the updated version of the PcLab2000SE:
velleman.eu/downloads/files/ … _setup.zip
The original CD version may connect to wrong FTDI device.
I think it should be possible to use both of the instruments in the same PC with their own drivers.
i am sorry to tell you, that i am already using the version of the pclab2000se and
the included driver. The problem persists.
i tried also this way:
deinstall and remove all FTDI stuff and drivers from the PC and from devices with FTDI interface
deinstall the pclab2000se application
install pclab2000se application (actual version 4.0.5 from your link)
install FTDI Driver delivered with this pclab2000se (FTDI is version 18.104.22.168)
*** now PCSU1000 works finde
plug in the ikalogic SCANA plus (no other software installed)
Windows 7/64 will automatically install a newer FTDI Driver (Version 2.8.30)
*** now PCSU1000 frezees and wont work, until i plug out ikalogic SCANA plus and deinstall the new FTDI Driver manually
*** after removing the new FTDI Driver the PCSU1000 is working again, but then the SCANAplus box wont work as the Driver for it is missing
So there seems to be a problem with compatibility between the PCSU1000 application an the
new FTDI Driver (Version 2.8.30) automatically deliverd
Do you have any suggestions?
Thank you for your support und greetings
As a test I downloaded installed the ScanaStudio Logic Analyzer software.
It installed the FTDI driver too.
After doing this, the PCSU1000 seems to work fine with its original driver.

It may be possible to use them separately.
[quote]So there seems to be a problem with compatibility between the PCSU1000 application an the

In the original driver’s ftdibus.inf file there are following lines indicating this driver is modified for the PCSU1000 only:
i’ve tested further.
Only pluggin in one device does not work.
Depending on the latest installed Driver (PCSU1000 or FTDI) the
corresponding device (PCSU or SCANAplus) will work. The other Device will hung,
when plugged in as the only one.
Shure, the two devices use different USB\VID coding, so the rights driver
should be selected.
But the drivers will get installed in /windows/system32/drivers.
An there will be only one Version of ftdibus.sys and ftser2k.sys in /w/s32/drivers
as they use the same filenames for the driver-files.
So the system will only work with one version of the driver.
More bad, the system will ask for a reboot, when the Driver is changed from PCSU to FTDI
and vice versa.
I’ll do more testing at the beginning of the next week and will try to
modify inf-files and driver filenames to avoid the overwriting of ftdibus.sys and ftser2k.sys.
I’ll post the results here.
Thanks for your support and greetings
after serveral tests I now have managed to install and use both drivers
and both devices in parallel on the same machine.
As supposed in earlier posts, both drivers (actual FTDI Driver and your PCSU Driver 2.4.16) are
conflicting. Also Serivce Names (etc.) in Windows are conflicting and did need attention.
Here is an archive, which contains a modified inf-file and renamed driver files.

This will allow the parallel use of SCANAplus und the PCSU1000 on an Windows 7 box.

Thank you very much for putting in the time and effort to solve this problem!
